    The decision to be 'done' is a hard one. A personal one. One that often leaves people judging or questioning, no matter what you decide. We remember the thoughts of a mama who was real and vulnerable for us. --A Guest Post By A Mama Who Wished To Remain Anonymous-- I have five children, and...

    "How much more precious is a little humanity than all the rules in the world?" - Jean Piaget I'll admit I haven't yet entered toddler territory, but I do have a fast-growing boy nearing his first birthday. And with that has come an ever-moving, ever-exploring youngster. What joy to see the...

    Recently I wrote a post about the unexpected ways I've found community through my kids. I shared that for me this was not part of my initial plan, that community had happened but was not something I had sought. That was a bit of an oversimplification, though. One particular response to that...

    Raising healthy eaters. We all want to do it, but sometimes, it seems like an elusive task despite our best efforts. Here's what we've learned about raising healthy eaters. As parents, feeding our children is one of the main aspects of our caretaking, and of course, we want to do it right...

    I believe we can normalize breastfeeding by "planting seeds" about it with the next generation. I believe normalizing breastfeeding starts with children. "Oh my gosh, he is eating you!" My son's playmate had just found me nursing my youngest in the living room. Her eyes widened with curiosity...

    I decided I'm not committed to shielding my son from all things superhero. What I am committed to instead is teaching him about real life superheroes. My son is a superhero enthusiast. If he is not dressed as a superhero (which is often), he is likely pretending to be one. He portrays each...

    I'm new here. My 9-year-old Niece, Julie, died suddenly of pneumonia today, and she was really close with my Three Children (8, 7, and 4). I am having a really hard time trying to explain to my 4-year-old that her she won't see her cousin anymore. What can I say???

    Making a mistake can be a truly valuable lesson-if we choose. Cultivating a growth mindset in our children will help them recover from mistakes more quickly too. My young son already loathes making mistakes. If he doesn't try to ignore the misstep altogether, he will wallow in self-pity...

    I never encouraged my son to believe in Santa Claus. I never wanted him to believe. Yet, at nearly five-years old, he does anyway. After our son was born, my husband and I decided we would not celebrate Christmas with Santa Claus. Striving toward honesty ourselves, we saw no need to perpetuate...

    I have a couple quick questions that I am posting on behalf of my cousin. My cousin and her family may be relocating to Tennessee for her husband's work. She has been doing some research on the school system there since she has been told that it is a bit different then here in Ontario. She...

    Children living in the home of Big Ben are unable to read analog clocks, and they may not be alone. Raise your hand if you remember learning how to tell time on a clock? Second-graders around the world are probably being taught about the "big hand" and "little hand" as you read this. However...

    Children typically don't get to make many decisions for themselves. From when to eat and go to sleep, to what to wear and where to go, our tiniest companions are sometimes forgotten in the decision-making process. I am working hard on a daily basis to help guide my son toward making the best...
